Let's See If You Love The Quirky Trailer For Peruvian Comedy THAT THING YOU LOVE

Back in 2003, director Alvaro Velarde debuted Destiny Has No Favorites, a comedy riddled with social commentary about a housewife who rents her house for the filming of a soap opera, getting caught up in the fictional world being created in her own backyard. The movie marked the director as someone to keep tabs on.

It's been a long wait, but Velarde is now back with his sophomore feature, That Thing You Love. The surreal comedy follows a bitter woman holed up in a lighthouse seeking revenge against a former childhood sweetheart who runs a hotel on the same beach. Aside from the Peruvian cast, the film features appearances from Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman), British comic Trevor Lock, and French actress Anémone.

The recently debuted trailer is packed with quirky weirdness and more than a little influence from Pedro Almodóvar and Wes Anderson, among others. Watch it below.
